“Sunday on the Waterfront This family friendly, free live event runs from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Meyer Amphitheatre every month. Don’t miss THE MONKEES Lead Singer MICKY DOLENZ on October 21st. Battle of The Decades winner Pee Wee Lewis and the Hues will be the opening act.”

“Their inspired set list is a jaunt through rock history, from the ’50s (Elvis’ Jailhouse Rock), the ’60s (The Beatles’ Twist and Shout), the ’70s (Elton John’s Saturday Night’s All Right For Fighting and Kool and the Gang’s Ladies Night), the ’80s (Queen’s Crazy Little Thing Called Love) and into the ’90s (Del Amitri’s Roll To Me, done for the first time as a request for Carroll’s wife). And they try as much as possible to do things that aren’t on your ’80s mixtape – for instance, they cover the Police’s Spirits in the Material World rather than the expected Every Breath You Take and Prince’s excellent I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man rather than 1999. And those choices makes the show more than pleasant nostalgia. ”

“SunFest Local Band Review- Pee Wee Lewis and the Hues, formed back in 1986 in Palm Beach Gardens when, they admit, Huey Lewis and the News “were on the cutting edge,”   were maybe the band having the most fun. Christening the far, far FPL Stage at 12:45 p.m., they breezed through songs from their favorite era (Morris Day and the Time’s “Jungle Love,” anyone?) some more recent jams (OutKast’s “Hey Ya!”), some Elton (“Saturday Night’s All Right For Fighting”) and even a John Mayer song.  They play locally – where have they been all my life? ”

“Also, the representation of local bands was, as usual, excellent: Pee Wee Lewis and the Hues and the Kinected were two of my favorites. Check ‘em out, y’all.”
